Decades of violence and conflict have devastated Iraq and its people. More than two million men, women and children are currently forced from their homes and families continue to live in crowded camps in northern Iraq, terrified and exhausted. Those who are finally able to go home after more than a decade of war are returning home to nothing. Conditions in the camps are poor and families have access to just the basic services needed to survive. With your help, our partner is providing vital humanitarian support to those in need, including food, shelter and blankets.
